The American South: An Introduction

Dr. Christine Granger-Vahl

The South is a distinct historical, cultural and political part of the United States. In this course, we will read fiction and non-fiction, watch movies, and discuss our observations. We will learn about the geography of the South, its unique culture and a society that is still shaped by the legacies of slavery and the Civil Rights Movement. Our first text will be Paul Theroux’s Deep South (2015), a travel narrative (featuring photographs by Steve McCurry) that takes us from the South Carolina coast to the Mississippi River and into the hills of Arkansas. Join us for a tour de force through a quintessential American region. Along the way, you will practice your English discussion skills and become more proficient.

Recommended level of English: B2 to C2.
